I just made a new paper toy pattern recently for Sammy...a paper truck! I have made it available free for download on my design site. Print out the pdf and let your child color in the truck with his or her own custom paint job! Then, just score, cut, fold and glue until you have a cool new toy!
The free pdf has instructions and photos, but here are some more pics for your reference...
Pieces cut out and ready to fold! Be sure to score each fold line before cutting the pieces out...it'll make everything go so much easier!
Truck body piece folded and glued
This is the roof, windshield, and back window of the cab.
Window/cab piece attached to the main body of the truck
The bed liner, ready to install!
Bed liner glued into the truck. Now you're done! Leave the tailgate loose to open and close, OR glue it shut if you want it to stay in place.
Looking to step it up a little? Try making paper "loads" to haul. Cut out three sides of the doors so they open. Make a paper dog to ride in the back. Draw some bugs on the grill. Be creative and have fun!
